About:

This world premiere recording presents the Danish composer John Frandsen's grandiose Requiem (2010) for soloists, choir and orchestra. The work unfolds a full-scale ‘operatic’ setting of the entire medieval Latin text in a fascinating alternation with intimate solo hymns sung by the Icelandic singer Teitur to Danish poems by Simon Grotrian (b. 1961). The composer has dedicated his requiem to the victims of the tragedy on the Norwegian island of Utøya in 2011.

Reviews

BBC Music Magazine
4/5 Stars
"Frandsen’s substantial score (...) is by turns lavish and somber, electrifying and meditative. A worthy and affective tribute to those lives lost."

Gramophone
"John Frandsen has achieved a modern milestone"

Seismograf
"Lige som kirken er koncertsalen et rum, hvor det store, det eksistentielle og det ufattelige kan rummes, og hvor der er plads til andagtsstemning, og det mærker man også et aftryk af på en indspilning som denne, særligt når musikken har en kvalitet og historisk rodfæstethed som hos Frandsen."

Fyens Stiftstidende
4/6 Stars
"Der er øjeblikke af voldsom kraft, men også salige himmeltoner, i et modernistisk, ofte minimalistisk tonesprog, som forbinder de velkendte og universelle tekster med en nærværende nutid."

Gregers DH
4/6 Stars
"Spændinger, modsætninger og voldsom afveksling og vitalitet er sandelig også kvaliteter ved denne dødsmesse, dynamiske skred afvekslende med lyrisk intensitet og en brug af teksterne, der håndfast klarlægger deres indhold."
